Tmax is an excellent alround film. If you care to only use in the studio thats your choice.

However there are a vast number of photographers using Tmax films for a wide variety of uses in wildly differing lighting conditions and contrasts.

I would suggest you read John Sexton's excellent article about using Tmax films that was published in Darkroom & Creative Camera Techniques. circa 1987.

As someone who uses Tmax100 5"x4" & Tmax400 120 I know from long experience (since their release) that it is as easy to use as any other modern film.
